Club careerEdit

Born in Capellades, Barcelona, Catalonia, Torres finished his formation with FC Barcelona, representing its C and B-sides in Tercera División. On 14 July 2008 he joined Segunda División B club Terrassa FC,[1] going on to compete in that level in the following years with UE Sant Andreu, CD San Roque de Lepe, AD Ceuta[2] and Lleida Esportiu.[3]

On 17 June 2015, after three full seasons as an undisputed starter at Lleida, Torres signed a one-year deal with Segunda División side Deportivo Alavés.[4] He made his professional debut on 19 March of the following year, keeping a clean sheet in a home draw against CD Lugo.[5]

A backup to Fernando Pacheco, Torres only appeared in two league matches during the campaign, as the Basques returned to La Liga after ten years. On 27 June 2016, he terminated his contract[6] and joined Real Valladolid for one year on 8 July.[7]

A year later, he signed a two-year deal at FC Cartagena in the third division,[8] and helped the team win their group, though they missed out on promotion with a 1–0 play-off final loss to Extremadura UD in June 2018.[9] In August that year, he returned to Lleida.[10]
